“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
In this week's edition of "A Look Back," we take a look back at the making of Cosmopolis which stars Robert Pattinson, Julitte Binoch, Paul Giamatti and Sarah Gadon. Although the film is set in New York City, it was actually shot in Toronto, Canada. As excited as I am to see this David Cronenberg written and directed movie, I may be one of very few as Cosmopolis opens in only 3 theaters nationwide.
The real heavyweights being released this week include The Expendables 2, Paranorman, Sparkle and The Odd Life of Timothy Green. The action star packed sequel Expendables 2 appears to be the favorite to top the box office this weekend. As many of the famed action stars of the first film return in their same roles, or larger ones for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, they hope is that the newest editions will make this even more of a money maker than the 2010 original. Adding Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth to any action movie can't be all bad. I'm actually a little excited to see this even though I, like most other movie goers, didn't really care for the original.
